In autumn, when the weather is still pleasing with warm sunny days, it is so nice to walk in a park or forest, breathing in the scent of fallen leaves. The colorful leaves underfoot are the materials that make wonderful wreaths, so don't miss out on your creativity.
It is necessary
- - Maple leaves;
- - threads;
- - scissors.
The first step is to pick beautiful, long-stemmed maple leaves. The color and size of the leaves does not matter, what you should pay attention to is the flexibility of the petioles: they must bend well and not break. To be sure of the quality of raw materials, it is better to pick the leaves from the tree, and it is better to take those that easily come off the branches.
Take two large leaves, put them cross on the cross with their legs, then circle one leg of the sheet around the second to make a loop, and tighten it as much as possible, just do not overdo it, otherwise the petiole will break off. Connect the two petioles together. Take the third leaf, put its petiole not cross with the two previous ones, go around the "tail" of the wreath, creating a loop. Connect all three petioles together so they run parallel.
Thus, continue to weave the wreath until it reaches the length you need. It is worth noting that the wreath is more lush and voluminous at a time, you can take not one, but two or three leaves at once.
After the wreath is woven, connect the two ends together, take the threads in the color of the leaves (yellow, green or red) and carefully tie the garment. Cut off any excess petioles with scissors.
A wreath of maple leaves is ready. It can be used as a headdress for a children's matinee, use it in photo shoots or decorate the front door of the house with it.
